Gen 24: 3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell: 4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac. Again, you still have not answered my question still. Do you Marry any man who walks across your path or up to you or do you PICK the man to marry based on advantages the one you choose has over the others or not ?? Notice how you are going on and on and on but yet to answer the question I have asked you twice now @Aisha.Why would Abraham make Eliezer swear that He would not choose a wife for Isaac from among the very people with whom they lived? Genesis 28:6 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughers of Canaan; why would Isaac strictly command Jacob NOT to take a wife of the daughters of Canaan? Since you are a Christian, take a christian name, from the Zillions that are available! What has LOVE thy neighbour to do with Marrying a Christian in this case.
The passage goes on to say, “What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Even a shango worshipper can claim to be "showing love to people" they meet. The bible differentiates "people" into two groups - believers and unbelievers.
What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? shun the word of Christ which is God Himself (John 1) and claim to be "practical". We are enjoined to show love to unbelievers and even PRAY FOR OUR ENEMIES.
I am a Christain a Baptised one with one of these orthodox churches but am not a Hypocryte, I will not serve a God who will discrimniate, that will mean everything i tot God stands for is a lie.
However i know my God, i know who i serve and i know He is Love and has no place for hate or discrimination, people have turned Him to a Political tool to spread their wicked nature and destruction My late mother is my role model, she loved everyone, she never believed anyone is bad, even when they hurt her.
2 Corinthians declares, “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers.
For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? ” While this passage does not specifically mention marriage, it most definitely has implications for marriage. Sadly too many people with a lack of understanding of biblical principles, too many people excusing their disobedience and hypocrisy by hiding under the umbrella of the scriptures discriminating against people.
Genesis Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Explain to me how those two work together please so I understand how you apply it in your own life there @Aisha If loving people without discriminating makes me a hypocryte them am proud to be one.
Hmmmmmmm Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Why should i only love people who are a certain tribe or religion, did those people fall from heaven, Nobody has the right to define who i should love.
To start with Jesus Christ SHOULD be the only role model of he who calls Himself a follower of Christ. Let us look at just 3 examples of biblical marriages: Gen 26: 34 And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite: 35 Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.
